Cyrillic Anyone??

Sunday, 7 June 2009

For the past couple of months, I have been getting pending comments written in Cyrillic. Regarding them as spam, I’ve deleted them all.

Example:
бабуле тяжелее писать блоги , как эх догнать такие вот блоги

In the middle of the night, it occurred to me that perhaps they’re not spam. After all, my studies have focused on Romance languages (Spanish, Italian, French, & German) and Semetic languages (Hebrew & Aramaic).

What if Frume Sarah has suddenly become the Urban Kvetch of Eastern Europe, doesn’t know it, and has been deleting comments from my faithful, Cyrillic readers??

Yeah…not likely.

    блоги is blog. б is b, л is l, г is g. It’s Russian. I could painstakingly try to translate the rest, but I only took one semester of Russian. If you really want translations, copy the word into Google and type next to it ‘Russian English dictionary’.

    Spam.

    this is what Babel Fish did with it:
    [babule] to more heavily write [blogi] as [ekh] to overtake such here are [blogi

    I’d go with Spam too.

    Irina could probably translate as well.
